2 to 4 wheel drive

You can start by reading this post -





I don't think you have a T5 tranny, if it's behind a 4.0, it should be a BA-10. AX-15 mid '89+ or a AX-5 behind a 2.5 engine.


Up until jpnjim posted this, a transfer case would not bolt up to a 2wd tranny, his post proved it wrong to all of us -




That will give you a start on the conversion.


The best thing you can do, is find a like era XJ and pull all the 4wd parts off you'll need, that way you have the donor on hand for all the little odds and ends that you'll need.

There should be a tag on the rear section of the T-case, held in by a screw.


I'm sure yours looks nothing like this one, but



As far as attaching a T-case to a 2wd transmission, I believe that was only done on a BA 10/5. You can convert a 2wd trans to a 4wd trans, but you'd need the rear housing, and output shaft... by the time you're done, you might as well have just gotten a 4wd trans, since you need vital parts from one anyway.


The AX-5 is not a rare transmission, you shouldn't have trouble locating one at a yard.
